Short Bio

Andreas S. Schulz is Professor of Mathematics of Operations Research and Holder of the Chair for Operations Research at the Department of Mathematics and the School of Management at TUM. In 1998 he joined the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), most recently as the Patrick J. McGovern Chair of Management and Professor of Mathematics of Operations Research. Previously he was Head of the Operations Research & Statistics Group at MIT’s Sloan School. He has held visiting research professorships at the Institute of Theoretical Computer Science of ETH Zurich, in the Department of Quantitative Economics at Maastricht University, in the Department of Mathematics of TU Munich, at the Mathematics Department of TU Berlin, and at the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia. He obtained his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Technische Universität Berlin in 1996. Prof. Schulz' research interests include algorithmic game theory, approximation algorithms, combinatorial optimization, computational complexity, integer programming, network flows, polyhedral combinatorics, and scheduling theory. He has been on the editorial boards of several scientific journals, including ACM Transactions on Algorithms, Discrete Optimization, INFORMS Journal on Computing, Journal of Scheduling, and Operations Research. In 2014, he was Program Chair of the Theory Track of the 22nd European Symposium on Algorithms (ESA 2014).
